Introduction

This publication has made a significant contribution to the safe compression of oxygen primarily because the manufacturers and users have fully and openly shared their philosophies and experiences. It is recognized by the Working Group members that the feedback of operating experiences makes a powerful contribution to safe operation and design.

Oxygen compression represents a special risk in that the compressor can burn violently. This publication defines design and operating parameters for centrifugal oxygen compressors. Compliance with this publication can reduce the likelihood of, and the hazards arising from, a fire in a compressor to a level equal to or lower than those commonly accepted in the air separation industry.

This publication requires that all those who build and operate centrifugal oxygen compressors that have been specified to comply with this publication contribute towards it by fully reporting the circumstances surrounding oxygen fires. For the purpose of safe operation of the compressor and its auxiliaries the user and the manufacturer shall establish full agreement on the possible and expected modes of compressor operation (e.g., specified operating points, normal operating range, startup and shutdown, etc.)
